Titans coach surprised by Delanie Walker's speed


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) When Titans tight end Delanie Walker outran four Cowboys on his 61-yard touchdown reception Sunday, Tennessee coach Ken Whisenhunt was surprised and impressed by Walker's speed.

"Delanie had more speed than I thought he did on that long run," Whisenhunt told ESPN.com.

Walker caught 10 balls for 142 yards in the loss. It was the first 100-yard game of his career.


Delanie Walker has career day in losing effort Week 2


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Titans tight end Delanie Walker had a career performance Sunday against the Cowboys, but it wasn't enough in a 26-10 loss Week 2. Walker was the star on offense for Tennessee, finishing with a career-high 142 receiving yards on 10 catches, which tied a career-high.

After totaling three catches for 18 yards in the first half, Walker came alive in the second half, as quarterback Jake Locker also hit his stride after the break. Walker did most of his damage on a beautiful 61-yard touchdown catch. Walker came down with the reception around the Cowboys' 35-yard line and was greeted by a hard hit from a Dallas defender, but Walker stayed on his feet and outsprinted the defense to the end zone.

Sunday was the first 100-yard performance of Walker's career. He was targeted 14 times, which was also a career high. The Titans are back in action Week 3 at Cincinnati.


Delanie Walker begins 2014 season with TD in Week 1


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) After recording a career-best six touchdowns in 2013, Titans veteran tight end Delanie Walker wasted no time getting his first touchdown in 2014, as he recorded his 15th career touchdown during a 26-10 win Week 1 at Kansas City.

Walker's touchdown came on a 5-yard pass from Jake Locker in the second quarter and gave Tennessee a 7-3 lead. Walker finished with three catches for 37 yards. He was targeted four times and his longest catch went 17 yards.

The Titans are back in action Week 2 vs. Dallas.


Delanie Walker looks to build off career year


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) Tight end Delanie Walker is coming off his best season as a pro in 2013, his first year with the Titans. He finished second on the team with 60 catches, while also totaling career highs in yards (571) and touchdowns (six). 

Walker will look to build off his career year in 2014 and gets his first chance to make an impression in Week 1 at Kansas City.

Walker totaled six catches for 43 yards in a 26-17 loss last season against the Chiefs. Tight ends did not fare well against Kansas City last season, averaging 6.4 Fantasy points and 40.4 receiving yards per week. Though, tight ends had better success against Kansas City late in the year, totaling seven touchdowns over the final eight games, including the playoffs.

Walker should be a regular part of the passing game again in '14 for Tennessee and should have some standout weeks. But he probably won't be as consistent as the likes of Jimmy Graham, Rob Gronkowski or Julius Thomas, who are all considered elite Fantasy tight ends. Walker has some sleeper appeal for Week 1, but he's more of a low-end option.


Delanie Walker just a No. 2 tight end


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/18/2014) Titans tight end Delanie Walker was a solid producer for Fantasy owners in 2013, but he enters this season still expected to be just a No. 2 option in the majority of leagues.

The Titans beat writer for the Tennessean, Jim Wyatt, shared his projections for Walker this season, and he has him at 62 catches for 646 yards and five touchdowns.

To see how those projections compare to mine and Dave Richard check out this Fantasy Football Today blog here.


Delanie Walker aiming for 80 catches in 2014


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/1/2014) Titans tight end Delanie Walker told NFL Network he's got his sights set on catching 80 passes this season. 

Walker broke out last season with 60 catches for 571 yards and six scores. His head coach, Ken Whisenhunt, and tight ends coach, Mike Mularkey, are both former NFL tight ends, and his offensive coordinator, Jason Michael, was the tight ends coach with the Chargers last season. Whisenhunt has especially come to lean on tight ends over his last three seasons, so Walker should have a shot to produce some nice numbers. 


Delanie Walker expects big year for Titans tight ends


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/16/2014) Titans tight end Delanie Walker is excited about the new coaching staff this season, reports ESPN.

The Titans coaching staff is former NFL tight end Ken Whisenhunt as the coach, former tight ends coach Jason Michael as the offensive coordinator and former NFL tight end Mike Mularkey as the tight ends coach.

"We’re going to be very physical, we're going to play until the whistle blows, we're going to be very tough in the run game and when the passing game comes to us, we're going to make plays," Walker said. "I see the tight end position being of big impact in this offense."


Delanie Walker defends harsh words against teammates


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2014) Titans tight end Delanie Walker has defended himself after creating a stir by claiming a group of teammates were "cancers" in 2013. He pointed out that he did not cite any individuals.

"I am not saying it was this dude, this dude or this dude," he told The Tennesseean. "I just threw a number out there. I really don't know. I felt like it was a couple of guys. To be honest, I think people are taking it way too far. There were no fights, guys weren't missing meetings. That stuff wasn't going on. The locker room atmosphere wasn't bad. Everyone came to work and did their part.

"What I am talking about mainly is the attitude after losses. After you lose three straight games, I just felt like there should be more dedication to getting better and we didn't have that sometimes. I felt guys could have worked harder."


Delanie Walker criticizes group of teammates


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2014) Titans tight end Delanie Walker called out a group of teammates without naming names when assessing the struggles of his team in 2013. He said about six or seven players dragged the rest of the team down and became a "cancer."

"When we started losing more games, you got to see it more and more," Walker told radio station 104.5 The Zone. "It was falling apart and the players that were the cancer were dragging other players into that box with them and the box was getting bigger and bigger."

Walker added that those players proved most instrumental in the firing of coach Mike Munchak. He said new coach Ken Whisenhunt will realize who they are when he watches game film and will weed them out.


Hiring of Ken Whisenhunt should help Delanie Walker


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/23/2014) The hiring of former tight ends coach Ken Whisenhunt and offensive coordinator Jason Michael, who has served in the same capacity, should be a boon to Titans tight end Delanie Walker. Whisenhunt believes Walker can be a superstar.

Whiisenhunt compared Walker to prolific tight end Antonio Gates, with whom he worked this year as the Chargers offensive coordinator.

"I had a lot of respect for [Walker], so needless to say I'm excited that he's on this team and I'll have a chance to work with him," Whisenhunt told The Tennessean. "Working with (Gates) got me excited about the position, and I think there's a lot of elements to what Delanie does that are similar in that capacity."

Walker came on strong late in the season and finished with 60 catches for 571 yards and six touchdowns.


Delanie Walker solid in finale


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Titans tight end Delanie Walker had another decent game in Week 17 against the Texans, to finish off his career-best season.

Walker was targeted three times in the passing game, hauling in all three passes for 29 yards in a 16-10 win. The game puts him at 60 receptions for 571 yards with six touchdowns for the season, by far the best totals of his career


Delani Walker could finish season strong


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) Titans tight end Delanie Walker has not topped 10.0 yards per catch in any of his last five games, but could fine some success in Week 17 against a Texans defense that has struggled with tight ends.

Opposing tight ends are averaging 14.1 yards per catch against the Texans, and are putting up 51.7 yards per game with nine touchdowns in 15 games. Walker was held to just one reception in a Week 2 matchup against the Texans, but made it count with his first touchdown of the season.

Walker is enjoying the best season of his career, as he enters Week 17 with 57 receptions for 542 yards and six touchdowns. He can be considered a solid Fantasy option for Sunday's game, given the matchup. 


Delanie Walker does little on four catches


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2013) Titans tight end Delanie Walker wasn't especially productive with his eight catches last week against the Cardinals, picking up just 53 yards, but he did contribute a touchdown. He couldn't repeat the feat Week 16 at Jacksonville, making his lack of production a little harder to swallow.

Though he tied for second on the team with seven targets and four receptions, he had only 35 yards. Then again, wide receiver Kendall Wright, who also had seven targets and four receptions, had only 22 yards. On a day when quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for only 181 yards, the only Titan to catch a pass of more than 15 yards was wide receiver Nate Washington, who had six catches for 117 yards.

Walker will aim to get more out of his targets Week 17 against the Texans.


Another favorable matchup for Delanie Walker


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/18/2013) Titans tight end Delanie Walker came through last week against a Cardinals team that had allowed the most Fantasy points to tight ends, catching eight passes for 53 yards and a touchdown. In Week 16 at Jacksonville, he'll face another team that has struggled against tight ends, allowing the third-most Fantasy points to them.

Of course, Walker needed a season-high 11 targets to do what he did against the Cardinals, and a big reason he got all those targets was because the Titans found themselves in an unexpected shootout, losing 37-34 in overtime. You can't expect that sort of game against the Jaguars.

Still, even when the Titans lost to the Jaguars in Week 10, Walker caught four passes for 62 yards and a touchdown. If he took advantage of the matchup then, what's stopping him from taking advantage now?

Jamey Eisenberg, Dave Richard and Nathan Zegura are counting on it, ranking him in their top seven at tight end, with Dave and Nathan going as high as fifth.


Delanie Walker picks up where he left off


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Titans tight end Delanie Walker, who missed Week 14 with a concussion, caught eight passes for 53 yards and a touchdown in the overtime loss to Arizona. Walker has 27 catches and three touchdowns in his last four full games.

Walker drew three end-zone targets on one third-quarter drive. After failing to secure the first two, he got wide open for a 1-yard score. It was his sixth touchdown catch, the most by a Titans tight end since Frank Wychek caught six in 1996.

Walker drew 11 targets, second most on the team. He'll look to stay hot Week 16 at Jacksonville.


Delanie Walker ready to roll


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Titans tight end Delanie Walker, who was probable after recovering from a concussion, is active for the game against the Cardinals. Walker has 16 catches over his last three games.

Delanie Walker a must-start option in Week 15


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2013) Titans tight end Delanie Walker is expected to play in Week 15 against the Cardinals after sitting out in Week 14 with a concussion. This is a great matchup for him, and we like Walker as a must-start Fantasy option.

The Cardinals allow the most Fantasy points to opposing tight ends, and Walker was playing well before going down in Week 13. He has two games with double digits in Fantasy points since Week 10, and in the three games before he got hurt he had 27 targets.

The Cardinals have allowed 14 touchdowns to opposing tight ends this year with eight scoring at least eight Fantasy points. We expect Walker to hit that mark as well, and he's a great replacement option if you lost tight end Rob Gronkowski (knee).

Some prominent tight ends I'd start over Walker include Greg Olsen, Tony Gonzalez, Dennis Pitta, Charles Clay and Jordan Cameron. He has the chance to be a Top 5 Fantasy tight end this week. 


Half-dozen Titans probable for clash with Cardinals


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2013) Six Titans have been deemed probable for the game Sunday against Arizona, including tight end Delanie Walker, who missed the Week 14 game with a concussion.

Delanie Walker returns to practice, all but set for Sunday game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2013) Titans tight end Delanie Walker (concussion) was back on the practice field Wednesday and should be ready to return to game action Sunday against Arizona.

Walker was on a tear before missing the Week 14 clash at Denver. He had 19 catches for 199 yards and two touchdowns in his previous two games combined.


Titans coach expecting Delanie Walker back Week 15


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/9/2013) Titans coach Mike Munchak said Monday he assumes tight end Delanie Walker will return to the lineup Week 15 vs. Arizona, according to The Tennessean. Walker sat out Week 14 while recovering from a concussion.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) The Titans have made QB John Skelton, WR Damian Williams, WR Kenny Britt, DB Micah Pellerin, T Byron Stingily, TE Delanie Walker and DE Lavar Edwards inactive Week 14 against the Broncos.

Four on Titans offense questionable for game against Broncos


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) Despite missing every practice this week as he seeks to clear concussion protocol, Titans tight end Delanie Walker has been deemed questionable for the game Sunday at Denver. Fellow tight end Craig Stevens has received the same designation with a concussion.

Also questionable for the Titans are tackle David Stewart (shoulder) and wide receiver Damian Williams (hip).


Delanie Walker sidelined from practice again on Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) Titans tight end Delanie Walker missed his third straight practice on Friday, leading to speculation that he will be inactive Sunday at Denver. Walker has yet to clear concussion protocol.

Delanie Walker out again with concussion


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2013) Titans tight end Delanie Walker appears less likely than ever to play Sunday in Denver after missing his second straight practice Thursday as he continues through the concussion protocol process.

Walker had been on a roll before sustaining the concussion in Week 13. He had 14 catches for 153 yards and two touchdowns in the previous two games combined.


Delanie Walker facing strong matchup Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2013) Titans tight end Delanie Walker is looking at a strong matchup Week 14 against the Broncos, if he's active after suffering a concussion Week 13.

Denver has had a tough time defending opposing tight ends, allowing them to score 9.50 Fantasy points per game. Tight ends have averaged 79.25 yards per game against Denver, the second-highest total in the league. In the team's 12 games, tight ends have managed to score five touchdowns. 

Walker has been a surprising breakout star his first season in Tennessee. Walker is second on the team with a career-high 45 receptions, and leads the team with five receiving touchdowns. With Ryan Fitzpatrick under center, he's averaged about four catches per game. He could be the team's best weapon against a weak Denver secondary, but there's a chance he won't play either, so he would be missing a favorable matchup.
